Best Attendance – Ryan Christie – Carpenter

Ryan is still a K10 apprentice, working on the same site – Woodberry Down – and the same host employer – South Eastern Carpentry. He is due to complete his apprenticeship in September 2016.

Most Improved Apprentice – Harvey Pearce – Dry Liner

Harvey did not complete his apprenticeship due to financial issues. He was offered an engineering job with Morrison’s Utility Services which he felt he was unable to turn down; he is still working with Morrison’s Utility Services as an engineer. He has completed numerous certificates and short courses to enable him to progress further; he is now earning FIVE times as much as he was when he started.
